The Hebrew definition is also “angelic being, as guardians of Eden, as flanking God’s throne, as an image form hovering over the Ark of the Covenant, as the chariot of Jehovah. A cherub is a type of spiritual being mentioned in the Hebrew Bible and cited later on in the Christian biblical canons, usually associated with the presence of God. Cherubim are mentioned in the Torah (five books of Moses), the Book of Ezekiel, and the Book of Isaiah. They are also mentioned in the books of 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, and 2 Chronicles mainly in the construction of the House of God.
